Athletic Bilbao vs Levante Preview

Athletic Bilbao vs Levante

Competition – Spanish Primera

Stadium – San Mamés

Date: 23rd April 2018

Kick-off time – 20:00 GMT

Athletico Bilbao were a few minutes away from securing a famous win at the Bernabeu last time out but Christiano Ronaldo spoiled the party for them with a late equalizer.

The Basque side are down in 13th position and they need to finish the season on a high note if their manager is to stand a chance of keeping his job.

Next season, without European commitment, they will look to rebuild some of their reputation.

Levante’s 1-0 win over Malaga which relegated their opponents in the last matchday helped them take a giant step towards securing top flight safety.

They do have a tricky run of games before the season comes to an end, but they now have a seven points cushion on 18th place Deportivo and that looks to be a good tally to keep them up.

Athletic have lost just 19% of their games at the San Mames Stadium this season and two of those three losses have come against teams inside the top two.

As a matter of fact, prior to their shocking home loss to Deportivo, they were on a run of ten home games without tasting defeat.

Athetic have five wins from their last six meetings against Levante.
